A major winter storm has currently hit parts of the country as others brace for rain and ice.
A series of recent, huge storms that conspired with a fresh push of Arctic air have led to bone-chilling temperature levels and driving heavy snow from California’s Sierra Nevada to New England. By Monday night, parts of Pennsylvania and New England could see a foot of snow, AccuWeather senior meteorologist Alan Reppert said. Chicago might see up to 7 inches of snow and sleet. Behind the storm: bitter cold. Wind chill temperature levels in the minus 30 s were projection Monday in Estherville, Iowa. In Illinois, the weather service alerted that wind chills in the northern part of the state could fall to minus 28 degrees by Monday morning.Several twisters hit the Southeast Sunday afternoon, killing at least 23 people in one Alabama county on the USA’s deadliest day for twisters in over 2 years. Areas hit by tornadoes can expect drier, chillier conditions Monday, AccuWeather reported.

On Monday the House Judiciary Committee plans to problem file requests from over 60 people connected to the White House and the Trump Organization, Home Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler said throughout an interview on ABC’s “This Week.” Among those individuals are the president’s earliest kid, Donald Trump Jr., and Adam Weisselberg, the chief monetary officer for the Trump Organization. Nadler, D-N.Y., anticipated that the complete list of names would be made public on Monday. “It’s very clear that the president blocked justice,” Nadler said. But the congressman warned that “impeachment is a long method down the roadway.”
A federal court on Monday will begin hearing the case of Hoda Muthana, who got away Alabama in 2014 to marry an Islamic State fighter in Syria and is now seeking to return to the United States with her 18- month-old kid. The Trump administration has actually barred Muthana, 24, and her kid from returning, contesting her claim to U.S. citizenship in a relocation that, if successful, could have major and significant ramifications for American residents all over the world. The administration has actually figured out Muthana, who was born in New Jersey, never certified for U.S. citizenship because her dad was a diplomat at the time of her birth. But the Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America, a Texas-based group, says she was born after her dad left diplomatic service. The plaintiffs argue that only the courts can choose the citizenship concern.

Oakland instructors will be back in their classrooms Monday after union members voted to approve a agreement offer with district authorities. The Oakland Education Association voted in favor of the deal on Sunday after postponing the vote for a day. The contract was reached after 3,000 teachers went on strike Feb. 21, prompting seven days of marathon negotiations for greater pay, smaller sized classes and more school resources. The deal consists of an 11 percent wage increase and a one-time 3 percent bonus.
